Manufacturer's ID: TR-08

What we say:

At A Glance:

The TR-08 from Roland is one of our favourite releases from recent years. It models the sounds of the legendary TR-808 drum machine down to the fine print, and provides a level of hands-on control that a sample pack can’t provide. Not to mention that the TR-08 is extremely portable, and can record Audio and MIDI over a single USB connection. This makes it a perfect addition to the studio or live setup of anyone looking for those iconic sounds.

Features We Love:

Iconic TR-808 Sounds

The TR-808 needs no introduction. It is without a doubt the most famous drum machine to ever exist, and it’s importance to music cannot be understated. It’s prominence in so many genres have made it’s iconic sounds a staple in today’s world. You’ll hear 808s all over songs from just about any radio station you turn on. The TR-08 uses Roland’s patented Analog Circuit Behaviour (ACB) modelling technology to replicate the circuitry and sound of this legendary machine, bringing it into the modern age.

Ultra-Compact and Portable

The TR-08 is extremely compact and portable, weighing only 1.3kg and small enough to fit in any backpack. It can be powered by either AA batteries or USB bus power, and features a built in speaker, which means you can take those sounds anywhere you like.

Hands-on Control

808 sample packs are a dime-a-dozen, but there is a major thing missing from these. The 808 is an instrument, and it’s supposed to be played! The TR-08 recreates the behaviour of the original unit down to the fine details, meanwhile providing full hands-on control. The sequencer on the TR-08 is powerful, and you have the ability to tweak and shape sounds exactly how you like.

  • Iconic TR-808 Sounds

Easy to use with a great sound. When you live in a semi detached house it?s kinda hard to use a drum kit. So this drum machine is a life saver when you are recording your own music
